"Obi is an Ibo word (Nigerian) meaning heart, also used to designate the main dwelling of a compound. Wan is a Chinese word meaning gentle. Ken is Japanese for strong. I don't know if it's intentional, but it's interesting nontheless." So, Obi-Wan Kenobi is "Gentle Heart, Strong Heart". Interesting. A "dagoba" is a "dome-shaped structure built over relics of Buddha or some Buddhist saint." I can't help but relate that to Dagobah. Especially since Yoda's hut is a 'dome-shaped structure', and it could be said to be 'built over relics of the Jedi' (or relics of the Force).
